Landrum sees strip of storefronts filling up by Samantha Hurst

While city officials in Landrum say there has not been a concerted effort on their part to attract new businesses, storefronts are filling up throughout downtown with a bakery still to open. “There are people on the street all the time and for a business owner that is important,” said Evelyn Schaper, who co-owns Voyageur’s Antiques, one of several new businesses to open in Landrum in the last month. Schaper runs Voyageur’s Antiques with partner Ed Lettelier. The two have both lived in the area for about 12 years, most recently operating the antique business near the state line. “When we weren’t getting any foot traffic on the state line we felt it was time for a move,” Schaper said. They felt they had found the (Continued on page 3)

Voyageur’s opened just two weeks ago into an 8,600-square-foot building two doors down from Hare & Hound restaurant. In between the two businesses is a new bakery set to open later this year.

perfect location in the 8,600-squarefoot building right on the main strip through Landrum. Schaper said the vibrancy of the town on weekends made their decision easy. “Landrum has a lot of things going on and I think maybe the billboard on the interstate has caught people’s attention as well,” Schaper said. “If you drive down here on a Saturday the traffic is bumper to bumper.” Mayor Bobby Briggs is encouraged by the recent business activity. While he said the town has not crafted a specific plan to recruit new businesses, he does believe efforts to tout Landrum as a haven for travelers has helped many businesses see the potential in moving to the city’s downtown area. “If there is a perception of things going bad, it can become a bad downward spiral, but in the same sense, if it seems like things are going well for other business owners, then that can be contagious too,”

Briggs said. Briggs said the town put up its first billboard about a year and a half ago to attract more tourists to the area. It also began taking a closer look at ways to promote the town through its website. City Manager Steve Wolochowicz said the website received 130,000 hits last month. “That’s the most we’ve seen since the site has been up over the past six years,” Wolochowicz said in a recent meeting. Just in the last six months, Ken’s Fine Meats & Seafood and Dutch Country Foods, both opened. The two recently held ribbon cuttings. Meanwhile a second new antique store, Carolina Antiques and More, opened last week and continues to fill their shop with new items. Cakes & Confections 4U has its sign up on the shop beside The Hare & Hound but has not posted when they expect to open. Briggs said the town encourages new business owners to be as involved in community events as they can be. He hopes to see many

of them offer later hours, especially during events like the Christmas stroll. “If we’re trying to bill ourselves

as a tourist destination and nobody is open during community events, especially, that’s a negative,” Briggs said.

Landrum Police monthly report

Landrum Police Chief Bruce Shelnut reported that the department gave out 89 traffic citations during the month of July, making 9 traffic-related arrests. Two of those arrests were DUIs, while four were related to suspended licenses, one for operating an uninsured vehicle, one for hit and run with property damage and one for leaving the scene of an accident. The department also made eight criminal arrests related to assault, domestic violence, shoplifting, trespassing and posession of marijuana.

Landrum Fire sees increase in calls

Chief Jimmy Flynn reported that the Landrum Fire Department responded to 23 calls last month, bringing the total for the year above 120. He said this is about 25 calls more than this time last year. He said the number of summer storms has definitely had an affect.

Landrum fire considers seeking FEMA grant

Chief Jimmy Flynn said the Landrum Fire Department recently ordered a $17,000 fire hose. The funds to purchase the hose came from a FEMA grant. Another grant cycle opens Aug. 15 and the department is considering applying for funds to purchase a 2,500 gallon tanker truck that would provide them better access to water in areas where fire hydrants are not available.

Sept. 11 memorial service planned

Landrum First Baptist Pastor Andy Allen visited the Landrum City Council Aug. 10 to invite council members and the public to a community memorial service marking the 10th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks.

Sen. Hagan seeks comment on post office closures Home sales up in Greenville, Charlotte

U.S. Senator Kay Hagan (DNC) wants the U.S. Postal Service to know what North Carolina residents think about proposed post office closures across the state. Hagan this week urged Postmaster General Patrick Donahoe to listen to residents who would be affected by the closures before making a final decision. In an effort to find cost savings, the U.S. Postal Service has announced it’s studying the potential closure of about 3,700 post offices across the country, including 20 in North Carolina. The North Carolina post offices under consideration for closure are: Downtown Boone, Cedar Island, Comfort, East Durham, Edward, Fontana Dam, Grassy Creek, ECU Station (Greenville), Hassell, Surf City Fin (Holly Ridge), Brynn Marr (Jacksonville), Norman, Pendleton, Five Points (Raleigh), Century (Raleigh), Roduco, Severn, Speed, Stonewall and Waughtown (Winston Salem). Sen. Hagan says rural areas that lose a post office would be particularly hard hit by the closures, and she urges the postal service to listen to residents in those areas. “Post offices provide communities with more than just stamps and package pick-up services,” Hagan wrote in a letter to Donahoe. “Many post office locations are gathering centers and lifelines for the communities they serve. This is especially true for our rural communities in North Carolina, which seem to bear the brunt disproportionately of each economic challenge the nation encounters, including the current downturn.” The U.S. Postal Service also is considering closure of 28 post offices in South Carolina. The list

includes a few post offices in urban areas such as Columbia and Greenville, but most are in small towns or rural areas. The U.S. Postal Service says it must consider ways to adapt to customers’ changing practices. “As more customers choose to conduct their postal business online, on their smart phones and at their favorite shopping destinations, the need for the U.S. Postal Service to maintain its nearly 32,000 retail offices – the largest retail network in the country – diminishes,” says the U.S. Postal Service. The postal service says it will introduce as a potential replacement option the “Village Post Office,” which would be operated by local businesses and offer products and services such as stamps and flat-rate packaging. *** Home sales are increasing in areas throughout the Carolinas, although prices remain low, according to real estate associations. The Charlotte Regional Realtor Association says sales in a 10-county region surrounding Charlotte were up 9.7 percent in July compared to a year ago. The realtor association says Mecklenburg County had 999 closings in July, up from 913 last year, and new listings were down 30 percent in the county, reflecting a declining inventory. The number of homes for sale in the county in July was 8,965, well below last year’s total in July of 11,972. The median sale price in the county in July was $166,895, up slightly from last year’s median of $162,515. Despite the recent improvement, year-to-date home sales for 2011 still lag those for 2010, and it’s taking nearly five months on average for homes to sell. Year-to-date home sales for 2011 are also behind the 2010

pace in the Greenville, S.C. metro area, although sales are on the rise again, according to the Greater Greenville Association of Realtors. The association says June was the best month for real estate sales in the area since June of last year. The association says 626 existing residences sold in June, up from 338 homes sold in January, although still down 17.8 percent compared to last June. Nick Sabatine, chief executive officer of the Greater Greenville Association of Realtors, says real estate sales should continue a slow climb, although his association and others are worried that a proposal in Congress to require a 20 percent down payment could halt the positive momentum. Sabatine said real estate associations are urging Congress to reject the proposal that “would just kill everything.” *** Most metro areas in the Carolinas beat the national average last year for personal income growth, according to the U.S. Bureau of Economic Analysis. The national average for the 366 metro areas was 2.9 percent. The rebound followed personal income declines in most areas in both 2008 and 2009. In South Carolina, the Anderson and Charleston metro areas each had personal income growth of 3.8 percent in 2010, the largest increase in the state. Greenville was close behind at 3.6 percent, while Spartanburg was at 3.3 percent and Columbia was at 2.3 percent. Charlotte had the most personal income of any metro area in the Carolinas and ranked 35th out of 366 metro areas in the country. Residents in the Charlotte-Gastonia-Rock Hill metro area earned a total of $69.2 billion last year, up 4.3 percent from 2009. The personal income figure includes all income from all sources. The Raleigh-Cary metro area was next in the Carolinas with 44.5 billion

in personal income in 2010. While Charlotte lead the Carolinas, it’s still far behind New York City, the top metro area in the country for personal income with $1.03 trillion in 2010, followed by Los Angeles at $565.4 billion, Chicago at $435.4 billion and Washington D.C. at $323.5 billion. According to the U.S. Bureau of Economic Analysis, only four metro areas (Carson City, Las Vegas and Reno in Nevada and Grand Junction in Colorado) did not see an increase in personal income in 2010. In metro areas nationwide, personal income grew 2.3 percent and property income climbed 0.6 percent in 2010. *** The Carolinas did not rank high for entrepreneurial activity last year, according to a recent study by economists at the University of NebraskaLincoln. North Carolina and South Carolina ranked 41st and 50th, respectively, on the State Entrepreneurship Index, a measure of growth in business establishments, business formation, revenue per capita of sole proprietorships and partnerships and patents per capita. The last time the index was released in 2008, North Carolina ranked 29th and South Carolina was 43rd. New York had the most entrepreneurial activity last year, followed by Washington, Massachusetts and New Jersey. *** North Carolina lagged most states when it comes to creating jobs in recent years, according to recently released figures from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. The Tar Heel state was 39th for the number of jobs created between June 2006 and June 2011. North Carolina had a net loss of 163,120 jobs during the five-year period. South Carolina did not fare much better, coming in 30th with a loss of 63,100 jobs. In contrast, Texas lead the nation with 537,500 non-farm jobs created during the period, far outpacing Louisiana

in second place with 55,900 jobs and North Dakota in third with 41,700 jobs. *** The Tar Heel State fared better on Princeton Review’s annual list of the best colleges. Ten North Carolina colleges made the list this year of the “Best 376 Colleges” in the country. The list included UNC Chapel Hill, UNC Asheville, UNC Greensboro, NC State, Wake Forest University, Davidson College, Warren Wilson College, Duke University, Elon University and Guilford College. The rankings are based on data from schools, campus visits, staff opinions and student feedback. Only about 15 percent of the nation’s four-year colleges make the list, which this year also included Clemson University, the University of South Carolina, Wofford College and The College of Charleston in South Carolina. *** Raleigh and Greenville, S.C. received high praise recently from RelocateAmerica, which ranked the cities fourth and sixth, respectively, on its list of the best places to live in the country. RelocateAmerica’s research team, which examined data in many categories, including housing, education, recreation, public safety and economic health, gave Austin, Texas the top ranking, followed by Grand Rapids, Michigan and Boulder, Colorado. Cary, Wilmington and Charlotte also made the list, although they were not in the top 10. RelocateAmerica says cities on its list are “well positioned for economic recovery, already experiencing strong economic recovery or have proven overall economic stability.” *** Duke Energy customers in North Carolina will see a 5 percent increase in their residential power bills. The N.C. Utilities Commission approved a 5 percent increase in rates for Duke Energy. The higher rates, which also include increases for industrial and commercial customers, will go into

effect September 1. Duke Energy requested higher utility rates to cover higher fuel costs. *** Duke Energy prevailed in an appeals court ruling that will allow it to count energy produced from burning whole trees as green energy. The state passed a law in 2007 requiring utilities to produce more energy from green sources. The Environmental Defense Fund and the N.C. Sustainable Energy Association claimed in a lawsuit that allowing utilities to count the energy from burning whole trees, rather than wood scraps and logging debris, could lead to more clear cutting of forests. However, the appellate court upheld a ruling by the N.C. Utilities Commission in October that said the state’s 2007 law did not specify what type of wood qualifies as biomass. *** Vision Airlines plans to discontinue its service from Asheville Regional Airport to Fort Walton, Fla. as of Aug. 19, but the flights may return when the tourist season comes back in the spring. The airline, which has been offering flights between the two airports two days a week, serving about 600 passengers each month, says it’s temporarily discontinuing service to nine of its 15 destination cities. The airline says it plans to resume a full schedule of flights in April. *** Asheville was featured on ABC-TV’s “Good Morning America” on Thursday in a segment showcasing America’s “10 Most Beautiful Places.” Asheville joined other locations, such as Lanikai Beach, Hawaii, the Grand Tetons in Wyoming, Point Reyes, Calif. and Sedona, Ariz. in the segment. Asheville was selected after the TV show received many photographs of the area from viewers. The show, which aimed to make the list geographically diverse, recently sent a crew to Asheville to get more photos and video for the program. *** The U.S. Forest Service in

North Carolina has closed four hiking trails in the Appalachian Ranger District due to an increase in bear encounters. The Buncombe Horse Trail, Mt. Mitchell Trail, Mountain to Sea Trail and Higgins Bald Trail, and their related camping areas, have been closed after the forest service received reports of about a half-dozen bear encounters in less than a week near Mount Mitchell. Visitors to national forests are encouraged to practice safety measures to reduce the chance of bear encounters.

Sales of the license plates benefit the nonprofit organization, which seeks to aid wildlife in the park, including black bears, elk and trout. The license plate has generated more than $2.4 million for Friends of Great Smoky Mountains National Park since the plate was launched in 1999. Some of the money has been used to study and protect the estimated 1,500 black bears in the park. The Smokies plate is available from license plate agency offices or from the N.C.

BBBS adventure on the Green River On a recent Saturday afternoon, seventeen Big Brothers and Sisters (BBBS) escaped the heat with their littles to kayak the lower Green River in inflatable orange, one and two-man kayaks.

the adults. After registration and a short orientation, everyone was fitted with life jackets and helmets and boarded a van for the short ride down to the launch site. Tony Koga and Isaac Thomson, guides, demonstrated basic paddling and what to do in the event that someone fell out of a kayak, which happened a few (continued on page 21)

Sandy the Stickgirl

Jada Wilson, 11, of Landrum drew this “Stick Girl” cartoon. Wilson said she has been drawing cartoons since she was 7. “I’ve had a creative mind since I turned 5,” Wilson said. “And I find it interesting cartooning. I basically just like the way they are drawn.” Wilson said the stories will randomly pop in her mind and she’ll sit down and draw them. She said she draws almost every day. (cartoon by Jada Wilson)

Despite the fact that it was, after all, a very small school in a very small town, Tryon High School managed to field

a remarkably successful golf program for nearly 50 years. From the time the school’s golf teams were formed in the forties until the consolidation

century, Tryon Country Club served as the home course for the school’s golf teams. Early Tiger golfers often worked as caddies at the club, and many Tryon High alumni went on to play college golf and work in the golf industry as professionals and course superintendents. On Saturday, Aug. 20, former Tiger players, coaches and TCC golf pros will once again gather at the country club for the seventh annual Tryon High School Golf Team reunion tournament. The annual reunion tourn a m e n t w a s o rg a n i z e d b y Marc Brady, a Tiger alumni and current PGA professional at the Tryon Country Club, and Tommy Burrell, a former member of the Tryon High School golf team. According to Brady, the idea behind the formation of the tournament was twofold. “We wanted a way to get all the guys together, and also to thank Tryon Country Club for all of their years of support,” said Brady. “It’s a great way to thank the club, as well as the golf professionals and coaches that were always there for us.” Each year, the team members donate a portion of their tournament entry fees to the club for a special project. The

four man captain’s choice tournament will begin at 2 p.m. with a shotgun start. Several dozen golfers are expected to compete in the event, coming back home from as far away as Texas and Florida. Long time TCC and Red Fox pro Lou Hoskyns will be on hand, as will former team coaches Geoff Tennant and Franklin McKaig. Following the tournament, players and families will gather to reminisce and enjoy a barbecue picnic. The event is open to any former Tiger team member.

TBOM and volunteers distribute school supplies

Being equipped with the proper tools is always the first step for success in school, and for hundreds of children throughout Polk County that first step has already begun thanks to Thermal Belt Outreach Ministry (TBOM). On Saturday, Aug. 6 TBOM along with many volunteers, collected applications and delivered backpacks, pencils, paper, markers, crayons, notebooks, rulers and much more to children in need from the Polk County area. “During these difficult economic times, many families are struggling just to meet the basic necessities of food, clothing and shelter,” stated Michelle Reedy, client services coordinator for TBOM. “As such, education may become less important in their daily budget due to other immediate needs. However, this program allows us to concentrate on providing the tools for academic success and also helps to encourage confidence within the child.” Thanks to the Polk County High School staff and Bill Miller, school superintendent, the cafeteria was made available to TBOM as a distribution center to accommodate the children, parents, partner organizations and volunteers. Beginning at 11 a.m., families and their children started pouring into the cafeteto receive school supplies 0tfn3tueria - page 7

for the upcoming school year. By the end of the distribution, 259 children representing pre-k through twelfth grade had been outfitted with the necessary tools for school. The distribution and the need did not end on this day. Reedy explained, “Due to increased demand, TBOM is continuing to accept applications for children who need help with school supplies. In addition, TBOM has established a school supply closet program that is located at each Polk County School for those children who may need access to these supplies throughout the year.” “Of course, none of this could be accomplished without (Continued on page 38)

Of course, you have given up the right to decide who will get your assets and how they will get them. You have lost the right to say who will be in control of your assets upon your death and you cannot name the person of your choice to be the guardian of your minor children. Not having a will does not mean that your estate will not be probated. The process is essentially the same for those who do have and those who do not have a will. It just goes by a different name. If you have a will it is called a probate. If you do not it is called an administration. In either case the court will be involved in determining how your assets will be distributed.

nosilicate and alumino-calcium silicate. These are both sources of aluminum, which is a toxic metal. Aluminum has also been linked to Alzheimer’s disease. When purchasing salt I recommend natural sea salt. Sea salt is produced by the evaporation of seawater. It does contain 81 trace minerals, but is a poor source of iodine. Since most commercial salts are enriched with iodine, you’ll need to supplement your diet with iodine when switching from regular salt to sea salt. Food sources of iodine include seafood, fresh fish, kelp and seaweed. I recommend only 150mcg a day. Remember, sodium is added to so many foods by manufactures, that it’s hard to avoid. Many foods contain tremendous amounts of sodium even though they don’t taste salty. I recommend becoming a label reader. It’s the best way to know just how much sodium you’re getting.
